HEALTH EDUCATION 21F - Full Year

HEA21F
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Starr

This course builds on the skills developed in Level 1 and extends the knowledge of the main concepts of Health Education. Students will be required to think critically about themselves, others and society through a variety of contexts.
Topics include:
1. Adolescent Health Issue – Using the issues of teenage alcohol use, body image and relationships students will look at the consequence of each on an individual and strategies to improve the situation.
2. Mental Health – Looking at the event of the February earthquake in 2011 students will look at the impact this had on the mental health and resilience of an individual.
3. Health Promotion – Working as a class, students will plan an action that will improve the health of a group of students within the school.
4. Gender and Sexuality – By studying media and societal attitudes students will look at how stereotypes can influence a teenager to behave and act as well as developing strategies to change this inequality.

A device is required if the student wishes to complete the assessments electronically and for research purposes throughout the year.

Future Possibilities
